David Moyes responds when asked about replacing Deila, praises Celtic's unbelievable fans

David Moyes Interview - 23/02/2014

David Moyes says he will wait until the summer before deciding his future.

David Moyes has told Sky Sports that he will wait until the summer before joining a new club, having been asked about the Celtic job.

Celtic announced on Wednesday that manager Ronny Deila is leaving the club at the end of the season having stumbled his way through the season.

Failures in Europe piled pressure on Deila, and after Sunday's defeat on penalties to Old Firm rivals Rangers, the Bhoys decided to part ways with the Norwegian once the season is over, despite him being on course to win the Scottish Premiership again.

Bookmakers have already been pricing up odds for who will replace Deila in the Celtic hot seat, and unsurprisingly, David Moyes is the immediate favourite for the job.

Moyes, 52, made 24 appearances for Celtic as a player, and is currently looking to rebuild his career as a manager after failed spells with Manchester United and Real Sociedad.

The Scot was impressive during his spells in charge of Preston and Everton though, and could be a smart appointment for Celtic as they look to dominate Scottish football again.

Moyes was asked by Sky Sports whether there is anything in the fact that he's the favourite for the job, and he responded by admitting he thinks Celtic are a 'brilliant club' with 'an unbelievable fanbase' - but won't make a decision on his future until the summer.

"Celtic's a brilliant football club, and they have an unbelievable fanbase - one of the biggest in the world," said Moyes. "I'm going to wait and make my decision in the summertime. There are lots of jobs that would interest me," he added.
